Exbourneís Community Market another success!
By Neil Price, Co-Editor

June 10, 2008: There was a hive of activity in and around Exbourne Village Hall on Saturday morning. The Exbourne and Jacobstowe Community Association held their summer community market and Big Breakfast. Several local projects and businesses from Exbourne, Jacobstowe, Monkokehampton and the surrounding area displayed their produce. The delicious smell of cooking bacon produced hearty appetites and there was a brisk trade in breakfasts. Turnover was good, as it was at last summerís community market. Amongst the stalls was one raising funds for the electrification of the village clock which is in the tower of St. Maryís Church, Exbourne. The Community Market was followed in the evening by a Jazz and Barbeque held at The Glebe House, by kind permission of Marie Winckler. The Exbourne and Jacobstowe Association raised just under £780 towards the underground shop project. The Jazz Evening in particular was a great success and was sold out. The Association did not hold the popular Open Gardens and Cream Teas Event this year, but will do so in the future. The Association would like to thank everybody who came and supported both events and in particular those who helped run and organise the market and the Jazz Evening.
